Whoa! Talk about an awesome first show. I'd love to see young Benoit fight Bill Dundee. Steiners are a great choice as Tag Champs. And I can only imagine the Flair vs Lance Von Erich match being brought up in "All Time Best Carry Jobs" threads 30 kayfabe years down the road.  :lol:

Ah yes, what a way to kick off Wild West Wrestling! I won't lie, I'm kind of digging the Chris Candido/Rod Price pairing as the Blond Bombers! Looking forward to many other Wild West Wrestling shows!

Great way to kick off Wild West Wrestling! Steiners are a great choice as champs. Benoit/Dundee would of been something to see in this era. The fans got their money's worth in that main event. I wouldn't mind seeing more of a Flair/Gilbert alliance.

Benoit and Dundee would have been great.  I liked the tag gauntlet a lot, but the idea of a Flair/Gilbert alliance makes me forget all the rest. :)  Great first show.

Great way to help your young guns and mid-carders.  Ric Flair's head must be spinning.  He is wrestling in bars and get get a win against Lance VonErich.  Love it!

Big win for Douglas and a good showcase for a lot of young talent.  Benoit gets a main event, which has to be a pretty big deal.

I am really enjoying this. It reminds me of when I first got into this game and Boon was running Continental but he also ran a separate program he called Alabama Championship Wrestling.  It is a great way to build up the names you want to be big stars!

I really enjoy this. It's such a creative way to showcase talent. Great start in the tournament. Douglas gets the classic 1st round upset over Black Bart. I liked the main event. Benoit and the Light Heavyweight championship are getting some good spotlight.

Hopefully John Travolta is rolling around Billy Bobs with Scott Glenn and the mechanical bull. I love the change up and the shows. I am still a little on edge with Benoit in the main events at this point in his career... but when you look at his resume in this world we've created... it really makes sense and works on a different level. I congratulate you guys on building him into one of the premier rookie talents in the world.

Gilbert: "Oh you guys are real tough beating up two chumps like the Moondogs…..but you guys didn't have the guts to face the Wild West Tag Team Champions…the Steiner Brothers." (Hawk asks for a mic)

 

Hawk: "WEEEELLLLLL……Edward….I guess it's their lucky day because we're still in the ring…and we've got a few extra minutes to kick the shit out of them too if they'd like to step in between these ropes."

I would not have bet on Lance Von Erich to win that tournament!

 

Roadies vs Steiners should be hot.

Roadies vs. Moondogs is a match I would have loved to see in a TV studio.  In a bar it's a can't miss match.  Not a huge Steiners fan but the Roadies would make good opponents.

Another fun show. LOL at Missing Link chasing Missy Hyatt out of the bar. Looking forward to Road Warriors and Steiners. Although I really liked the Road Warriors and Moondogs going at it in this environment. Congrats to Lance Von Erich. He looked good against Flair and kept the momentum going to win the tournament. Poor Rip Rogers, I imagine that will put him on the sidelines for a bit.
